Summer beer season is finally upon us! We may not be able to enjoy our summertime brews as we normally would, but breweries across the country are continuing to put out new brews.
We’ve rounded up new releases from breweries distributing across the country or large regions of the country so you will have access to most of them! These beers range from light refreshing Ales to heavy Imperial Stouts. Just because it’s warm outside doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the quality of your beer!
Athens, GA-based Creature Comforts has quickly grown into a regional powerhouse thanks to its mix of tart and bright Berliner Weisses, movie-star endorsed IPAs and commitment to the local community. And, until now, only beer drinkers in Athens have been able to pick up some of Creature Comfort’s more exclusive, taproom-only offerings that highlight their work in barrel-aging and mixed fermentation.
Starting this week, Creature Comforts’ will release DaySpring, a Grisette made with local wheat from DaySpring Farms, and Common Things, a mixed fermentation Saison made with local honey from the University of Georgia’s Honey Bee Program, in both their tasting room and to their distribution footprint in 750-mL bottles.
The goal of any brewery should be to produce great beer and positively impact their community. Many breweries have this similar mission, but few are as mission-driven as Savannah-based Service Brewing Co.
If you’ve been keeping up with Alpharetta, GA based brewery, Jekyll Brewing, you would know that their experimentation with juicy IPAs have increased overall over the last several months. One of their first juicy IPAs that gained tremendous traction in Georgia was Southern Juice. Since then, they’ve released the McLovin IPA, a NE-style IPA; 4Hundy, Milkshake Boys, Bad Breakup and Spaced Out. One of my favorites from their recent IPA trials was the Flightless Fowl, which was damn good.
A little over three months ago, highly celebrated, IPA driven and high gravity specialists, Scofflaw Brewing, celebrated their one year anniversary. From their inception up until that celebration, they tripled their production capacity and here we are again with plans to expand. Prior to their second expansion, it was rare to find cans in the market and once they upgraded the canning line was back up and running, but here we are again, expanding. I wonder what great things are coming this time.
I recently spoke with Jonathan Ingram, Media Relations at Scofflaw. He share some great news concerning some upcoming projects as well as what might make its way into cans this time around.
Savannah River Brewing Co. hosted Augusta, Georgia’s first beer dinner at a brewery – at least, since prohibition. Other beer dinners have been hosted in the area by other Georgia breweries, but this one was unique. Set apart from the others by its location, significance and success. Sold out to maximum seating, this event would be like no other event the brewery had put on, yet.
As the weather begins to cool and the busyness of summer comes to a halt, the time for reflection and the warmth of family draws near. Terrapin Beer Co. out of Athens, GA has released a carefully crafted brew that will fill the glass, warm the heart and comfort the chill of fall and winter.
Releasing from their Ales from the Wood collection, we have Richland Reserve Volume 2—a collaboration with local Georgia coffee shop, Jittery Joe’s, local distillery, Richland Rum, as well as Nashville’s first bean-to-bar chocolate company, Olive & Sinclair Chocolate; all joined to create a rich and smooth Imperial Milk Stout for your drinking pleasure.
The Atlanta Beer Beat sheds light on news of brewery openings, special tappings, firkins and one-off batches, bottle releases, dinners, pairings and more!
Nestled away in a quaint college town just about an hour outside of Atlanta, Creature Comforts Brewing Co. has been serving the people of Athens, Georgia for the last two years. They are most known for one of the Southeast’s most highly sought after IPAs — Tropicalia.
